I want to setup a password prompt (root user) when login through minicom (serial connection). After running passwd command (connected through ssh), i can setup a password for the root user. After that I will be asked for a password with every ssh connection. But unfortunately not when I connect serially. Any idea how I can setup password prompt for serial connection?
What are you presented with over that serial connection, instead?
1.) I run 'mincom' (on a computer that is serially connected to the device)
2.) then i see the minicom

3.) then I press Enter and am immediately connected serially on the device.
